Cold Lobster Dip

This is a treat at Christmas time, but the summer time works too!

I love lobster and I love dips!
I had frozen lobster in my freezer so I thought why not make a dip with it.
What you will need:
-2 cups of lobster (or however much you want)
-4 oz of mayonnaise
-4 oz of chili sauce
-1/4 of onions (or however many you want)
-1 pack of cream cheese (light)
-1/2 tsp of hot sauce (to your own preference)

I took out the lobster from the freezer, thawed it out over night in the fridge, then the next day, cut it up in to small pieces and patted it dry. You do not want the lobster to be wet when making the dip because the dip will be runny.

Next, I mixed the chili, mayo, hot sauce, onions, and cream cheese together. Once I mixed those ingredients together I mixed in the lobster. This image is of all the ingredients, minus the lobster.

Et voilà, done! So, so easy!

This dip should be served cold, so put it in the fridge for a bit before serving. Serve the dip with regular chips or crackers. Also feel free to add less or more of any of the ingredients. Enjoy!

Zucchini Chips

Do not know what to do with that zucchini in your fridge? Love chips? I have the recipe for you….

I chopped up zucchini, very thinly.

I brushed olive oil on both sides.

I sprinkled some salt and a spice that I had kicking around the kitchen. *Feel free to add any type of spice or herb.

I baked the zucchini slices at 350 for about 10 minutes then turned each slice around then baked for another 20 minutes or so. Some recipes tell you to bake them for 10 minutes on one side and another 10 on the other side. Other recipes say to bake for 45 minutes on one side, turn around, and bake for 45 minutes on the other side, at 200… I guess it is a matter of knowing how well/fast your oven works.
For me, at the 10 minute mark, when I turned the chips around, about 20 minutes after that, the chips were starting to burn, the small ones, that is. The larger ones took about 30 minutes or so to bake, yet some were still kind of soggy. I suggest, just keep an eye on them and take them out of the oven when they are starting to brown.
The chips that were actually crunchy were pretty good! They had a really good taste to them…maybe it was the spice that I had used?!? Nonetheless, it was an easy, yet tasty recipe with little calories.
Bonus: I had also read that the zucchini chips are zero pts on weight watchers.

This is a great light snack that I will definitely try to make again. Enjoy!
